Gift Aid Declaration

Thank you for making a donation to Wikimedia UK - and for making it go further with Gift Aid.

Please note that by declaring Gift Aid you are consenting to us keeping and using the information you provide. This is in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.

Gift Aid Declaration


Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25% of the value of your donations back from the government, if you are a UK taxpayer. It means your gifts can go even further to supporting open knowledge.


I am a UK taxpayer and want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to Wikimedia UK. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference

More about Gift Aid

You can find out more about Gift Aid at the HMRC website.

Why do we need your email address? 

A very high proportion of gifts we receive are made online. If you can put the same email address in this form as you used when making a donation (e.g. the email address associated with your PayPal account) it makes it much easier for us to match declarations to gifts.

Higher Rate Tax Payers

Don't forget that if you pay Income Tax at the higher rate you are likely to be able to claim further tax relief on your donations, via your tax return. If you're in any doubt please speak to your tax advisor.
